ANA-MI’s Position Statement: Safe Nurse Staffing to Improve Quality of Care

ANA Michigan’s Board of Directors approved a position statement entitled, Safe Nurse Staffing to Improve Quality of Care. This represents the Association’s public position on the issue of safe staffing. It is a document to help inform and support members in educating and having conversations in their home and professional communities.

ANA-MI’s Region 2 requested the position be developed for use by members as their community was having discussions about nursing ratios and labor organizing in a community hospital system. This is an example of a member-driven initiative. The request was referred by the Board to the Public Policy Council. (PPC).
